Petrofac brings Berantai on stream offshore Malaysia
KUALA LUMPUR -- Petrofac has announced that gas production from the Berantai field, offshore Malaysia, has commenced. Petrofac is operator of the field and has led the development under a Risk Services Contract (RSC), working alongside its local partner SapuraKencana Petroleum, on behalf of Petronas.
The Berantai field is located approximately 150 km offshore Peninsular Malaysia, 10 km south of the Tapis Field and 30 km northeast of the Angsi Field. The development comprises a wellhead platform connected to a floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel, the FPSO Berantai. Gas is exported by a 30 km subsea pipeline to the Petronas Carigali operated Angsi Field and onwards into the peninsular Malaysian gas grid.
